Grumpy cat posed for her likeness to be recreated in honor of her celebrity status in the world, it was reported by the official Grumpy Cat website.
“Grumpy Cat is one of the most successful animal Internet stars, with her own Christmas movie on Lifetime.”
What we can all learn from this honor is that Grumpy Cat underscores our addiction to cats, and it is in the spirit of Grumpy Cat and her immortalization in wax, that we survey ten famous cats which all deserve a monument for their status as truly extraordinary cats.
1. Bart — Also known as zombie cat, Bart survived an accident, but was buried alive. Bart clawed his way out of the dirt and now stalks the living. There is a controversy over the ownership of this cat.
